“Recent HoJo stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

Reasonable place for a short stay. friendly reception staff, helpful advice. Toilet seat looked old, frayed, paint peeling off and hence uninviting. Breakfast was average, not much variety and the lady was a bit short on patience with other customers, not us directly. Bathtub drained very slowly, hence a bit unattractive.

I was at a concert at the Newark Performing Art Center and this hotel was not too far. Low cost and short drive. Me and few buddies stayed for 2 nights. GREAT! Had a pool too! The breakfast was fine. Try to stay on the 2 floor rooms. Some places charge for internet--- this one doesnt.

Room Tip: Little difficult to get to (directions) but other than that was OK. Not a fancy place by any means b...

There is not enough words in the English language to describe the disgusting, filt of this motel. You would be better off sleeping on a park bench the staying at the gross place. This place needs to be condemned!!!!!!!!!!!!! I walked out after 3mins.

Reading all the reviews, I gave this place the benefit of the doubt, but should have known I made a huge mistake. It was 1 night, and upon check-in, the non-smoking room had a stench, found hairclip and beer bottle caps underneath the bed. Bedsheets did not look clean. I kept looking out the window, there were a lot of college students in a room nearby partying, drunk young men urinating by the door. Our parked car got scratched after staying for a hour. Immediately checked-out after 2 hours. Though it is budget freindly, it is definitely not family oriented and you will not sleep or feel safe traveling with young kids. There is a reason why there is a cop car circling in the hotel area a few times at night.

Disgusting!!! Front desk was rude, kept berating for having booked online and not directly with them. Hallways were dirty and smelled like pee! Didn't want to touch anything and left after 30 mins and ended up just driving 8 hours to Cornwall, Ontario before stopping for the night. Stay away!!!!

This was the most disgusting hotel I have EVER been in. Very dirty inside & outside, bottom of the pool was green. Couldn't bring myself to touch anything and ended up leaving after being there for 30 mins... so grossed out that I got my 2nd wind to drive home 6 more hours.
